    Asked on July 19, 2016 at 02:48 PM

    I want to set up a form where I have the person choose their membership level (from 3 choices) and have a field with an empty field where the person can enter their donation amour and then pass the total of these 2 fields to PayPal to complete payment.

    I've set up a form with either or but (even with the calculation widget) have not been able to have both fields added together to have the total passed to PayPal. All I have been able to do is pass the membership payment to PayPal.

    Please help.

    I believe this is the form you are working on: 

    Please try the following:

    1) Split the options into a native check box field:

    2) Use the Calculation widget to getthe total: 

    And hide it:

    3) Change your payment type to obtain the total amount: 


    You can clone my form version if you want to:

    Thank you. That solved the problem.

    However, I have the form integrated with a Google Spreadsheet -- but when I enter data into the form (either as a preview or in the form as "embedded" into our web site, the data is not showing in the Google spreadsheet. Is there a delay between time of data submission into the form and when the data displays in the spreadsheet. We're now using the form: Membership+Donation.
